BSG Primary classes put on an excellent production of Oliver! Pupils showed marvelous commitment and enthusiasm, and each and every one had a role on stage. The end result was fantastic…perhaps some future actors and actresses in the making.
Visit to the Tropiquarium
As part of their Rainforest Project, Year 3 visited the Zoo & Tropiquarium near Lausanne. The pupils were able to get up close and personal to many of the creatures they had been studying, and the warm temperatures were a nice change from the snowy conditions outside.
Year 4 went to the Discovery Centre at the ITU to learn about the fascinating history of information and communication technologies (ICT). Through interactive exhibitions and educational programmes, ICT Discovery’s mission is to entertain and educate us on the evolution and future of the technology alongside the role of the ITU in connecting our world. The trip coincided with the students’ “Software Design” project, in which they have been learning about the steps required in designing, creating, testing and reviewing a basic educational game.
This year’s AS Geography field trip took students to the Valais. They undertook research into the causes, impacts and increasing risks of floods and how they are managed within Switzerland. This exposure to data collection techniques will be a great resource to the class in their final exam.
Our teachers were extremely proud of the determination and enthusiasm shown by BSG students running in this year’s Escalade race.
The Year 9s were treated to a cross-curricular visit of the Hundertwasser exhibition in December at Quartier Libre SIG. The colourful work by the Austrian artist was a perfect opportunity to learn about Art as a medium to campaign for ecological issues, but also to practice French vocabulary in the context of the environment and urban versus natural settings. The students will follow in the artist’s footsteps by adapting his style of architecture to depictions of buildings and streets from their country of origin. We love to celebrate our diversity!
